One Day At A Time
The secret to life is living it … one day at a time
Our lives are made up of a million moments, spent in a million different ways. Some are spent searching for love, peace and harmony. Others are spent surviving day to day. But there is no greater moment than when we find that life, with all its joys and sorrows, is meant to be lived one day at a time.
It’s in this knowledge that we discover the most wonderful truth of all. Whether we live in a forty-room mansion, surrounded by servants and wealth, or find it a struggle to manage the rent month to month, we have it within our power to be fully satisfied and live a life with true meaning.
One day at a time … we have that ability, through cherishing each moment and rejoicing in each dream. We can experience each day anew, and with this fresh start we have what it takes to make all of our dreams come true. Each day is new, and living one day at a time enables us to truly enjoy life and live it to the fullest.
Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Live in this world as if you are a stranger or a passer-by.”
Ibn ‘Umar (RA) used to say: “When you are in the evening, do not expect to live till the morning and when you are in the morning, do not expect to live till the evening. Make a provision for the time when you will be sick while you are still healthy and make a provision for the time of your death while you are still living.” (Al-Bukhari)
